it's so sad that the A1-Gap between Daun and Blankenheim isn't closed yet...
The Eifel region needs this motorway so much, because the Bundesstraßen and Landstraßen in North-South direction are crowded with trucks. Some villages and towns have horrible traffic problems (especially Hillesheim).

The A60 Bitburg-Wittlich is in my eyes a motorway that was built for political reasons (to connect Belgium and the harbours with the Rhein-Main area - that gap isn't closed yet either!) - the traffic couldn't be the cause for that...sure some people use it to get to Trier but the way along AK Wittlich is much longer than the B50 from Bitburg to Trier which is totally overcrowded with truck traffic and cars and it doesn't even has 4 lanes (except a small piece of 2km) and runs through small villages...here a motorway was needed but now there's the A60 which was not necessary (in my eyes).

That's not the only fault in this statistic.
For the B61/E30 in Bad Oeynhausen, this statistic says around 35000 but in fact it's around 50000... It was already 37000 in 1988 and 46000 in 1991.

Snails cause road crash

Hundreds of migrating snails caused a six car pile-up at they swarmed across a busy dual carriageway in Germany.

Police and rescue chiefs had to close the road for several hours while crushed and surviving snails were scraped off the tarmac.

Environmentalists believe the mass migration could have been an indicator of climate change as the snails sought a more suitable habitat.

Six cars were damaged as they slid across the B14 A-Road near Stuttgart.

"Cars were crushing the snails and the slime was making the road so slippery that people started skidding all over the place," said one driver.

"Motorists had to stop and try to pick their way through the snails. It was like something from a horror film."

Every piece of shit is nowadays attributed to climate change. Perhaps it just rained and the f***ing snails just came out of their holes.

Last summer my sister was driving on the motorway in southern Sweden and she had to swerve for a family of ducks that were crossing the road!

You could've approached the vehicle in front of you for one more meter and overtaken the snail for another half an hour.
